Inspection Reports

The school is regularly inspected by OFSTED (March 2023) and as we are a Church of England school we also have a SIAMS inspection too (January 2018), which covers Christian ethos, worship and leadership and management.

‘Pupils’ behaviour is impeccable. They are deeply respectful and considerate of each other.’

‘Leaders and staff have high expectations of all pupils, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). They expect every pupil to achieve and behave well and are successful at making these things happen. Pupils are extremely eager learners. They comment that their teachers make learning fun.’

‘The school’s strong shared values and leaders’ commitment to nurture and the celebration of diversity make this school highly inclusive. Pupils learn to be valuable and responsible members of the school community by engaging in leadership opportunities, such as being mental-health champions and games leaders.’

‘Pupils’ excellent behaviour ensures that the school is a very orderly community. Pupils act with courtesy beyond their years, often rushing to open a door or to help someone who needs assistance. They go out of their way to look after each other. For example, they are quick to spot and to help those pupils who are playing on their own or who may need some reassurance in the playground. Their keenness to participate fully in learning ensures that there is no disruption to lessons.’

‘Leaders prioritise pupils’ wider personal development. Staff provide pupils with the richest opportunities to develop positive emotional health and well-being. Pupils relish spending time with Cookie, the school therapy dog. Staff give them the responsibility to organise their own clubs and fundraising and charity events. Through these activities, they are proud to model what it is to be excellent citizens.’

OFSTED Inspection 29th / 30th March 2023

‘St Anne’s Fulshaw is an extremely happy, caring and inclusive school. Strong loving relationships, springing from clear Christian values, bind the whole school community together and form the basis for excellent pastoral care and personal development of every pupil. A wide range of gospel values are known and displayed but particular emphasis is placed on love, trust, forgiveness, friendship, justice, hope and perseverance.

Pupils make good progress during their time in the school. Those with additional needs are effectively supported with careful thought given to each pupil as an individual.’

‘Leadership at St Anne’s Fulshaw is very strong. The headteacher is passionately committed to ensuring the school’s Christian values are lived out by the whole school community. With the school’s motto in mind, ‘Shine like stars’, senior leaders share a determination to provide an inclusive education of the highest standard for all.

Parents are strongly supportive of the school through their varied and substantial fund-raising and curriculum support activities. They also deepen the relationships between parents and staff to the benefit of the school community. Parents commented appreciatively on Christian values being ingrained in school and their positive impact on children’s behaviour and attitudes. They also noted that the school’s Christian ethos supported their children to grow in confidence. This appreciation of the Christian distinctiveness of St Anne’s prompted one parent to state that she felt ‘so fortunate’ that her child was in this school.’
